Seven Great Blog Posts You Shouldn’t Miss

seven1) Shai Linne who has long been one of my favorite Christian rappers, (his tune High Priest does a fantastic job of explaining the ancient Jewish ceremony on the Day of Atonement, which is a type and shadow of Christ’s crucifixion.) has dropped a new tune, Fal$e Teacher$,  not only is it worth a listen, the artist also does some serious name dropping exposing these false teachers. For a more comprehensive understanding of why he dropped the names he did, this post over at Here I Blog should help.

2) Speaking of False Teachers, if Shai Linne were to release to release a Fal$e Teacher$ part two, I’m sure Steven Furtick would make the list. In the last week his muzzle order form, under threat of legal action, that Elevation Church Cult has you sign as a volunteer is appalling, you can read this excellent blog post about it over at  FBC Jax Watchdogs. Secondly, lets face it, Furtick slept through his classes at SBTS, as evidenced here by this bone-headed tweet he sent out. ( I didn’t see it in person, or else I may have blogged on it, but The Furtick has me blocked on twitter, go figure.) But Erin Benziger did see it, and she does an  excellent job of breaking down the damnable error of his theology.

3) Homosexuality in the church is an issue that’s not going to go away. How do we respond as Christians to someone going through this sin? This article over at Ligonier does a great job of breaking it down.

4) Part of our problem with homosexuality is our failure to see sexual sin as a corporate matter as this post over at Desiring God explains.

5) If we trust the Bible as authoritative, the one notion that we can’t escape is the reality that faces everyone not found in Christ in eternity. The question remains though, does it please God to send people to hell? This article by Chris Roberts does a good job of explaining this.

6) As Christians it is our privilege to share the gospel with unbelievers, and believers alike, one element that is important is that we realize one thing we need to be is holy, check out this article by Terry Ivy as he breaks down this thought for us.

7) After reading the above article, I am sure some of you are saying, but we can’t contribute to our salvation, and this is true, but we certainly aren’t given to lawlessness either, it is a tough dichotomy, this video by Ligonier may be helpful.
